Re: Starting a nursery/David!


True, thet aren't tropical; they are desert. I tend to lump tender
plants together. My book says Polianthes tuberosa is hardy in zones
9-11, some others say 8-10; Mobot says 7-10. It's not hardy in Z5, so
it's tender to me. Tender sometimes means tropical, sub-tropical,
desert, not fully hardy, to me.
